Fundacion Estrellita De Belen

Saving children with Congenital Heart Disease


Nearly 4000 heart-affected children are born in Venezuela each year with 80% being suitable to receive proper treatment in the first months or years of life. This high incidence of CHD and the increasingly serious health care crisis of recent years has resulted in a large number of children waiting to receive care. They either die while waiting for their procedures or while moving from hospital to hospital. Many others become inoperable due to the delay in treatment.

We independently support and fund treatment for children with Congenital Heart Disease in Venezuela. Our purpose is to ensure they receive the critical care they need by raising funds to provide support through private donors, fundraising and volunteers.
